Making progress on getting the new coach bugs worked out

In September 2016 we had to part with our 2008 Sightseer as the bins were literally rotting off the coach. We ended up gettting a 2016 Winnie Sunstar 31BE that was priced "right" with the idea that we would get rid of it at the 5 year mark to avoid the bin rot and then get a coach that had rotocast bins. From the beginning it was much louder that the old Sightseer going down the road, the door lock worked only part of the time (dead bolt seldom, and sometimes being locked outby the other lock), no downshift in tow haul and enough gaps that we were raisng loads of mice. We took it back to the dealer to have the door worked on which was a first in a lifetime of Rving as I generally just fix stuff myself. They said the door was "fixed" but still screwed up and I will just replace the lock and latch unit rather that drive 8 hours round trip to the dealer. Regarding the noise the dealer was clueless but when talking to Winne the gal asked about the weep hole covers. (we were missing four) I will most likely order those but for now I put some black hundred mile an hour tape over the holes and we now have the quietest coach we have ever had, even in 40 mile an hour cross winds! AS to the lack of a downshift in tow haul the folks on this board had the TSB number for the 2016 issue and the local Ford dealer took care of that yesterday so it is now like driving an old friend. Finally, as to all the hitch hiking critters, the gaps that Winne left for the plumbing and such have now been sealed with "Great Stuff" and the Critters will now have to find an alternative method of transportation. My purpose in outlining all of the trials and tribulations we have had is to remind folks not to get discouraged if they have bugs that need worked out on a new or used unit. Safe travels!!

Dolly tow fwd Acadia

Is anyone dolly towing a front wheel drive Acadia? We just bought a 2014 to replace the 2008 honda civic as a toad. Eventually we might go back to four down but for right now we would prefer to stick with the dolly. (master tow 88) Thanks!

Hot Rodd water heater needing reset often

I just installed a Hot Rodd with the on off switch and it works great but once a day it needs the reset button pushed. Any ideas on what causes it to trip? Thanks!

RE: Non RV electrical question

Yes I can find operator manuals but they all say wire according to local code. I will give Star Holman a ring in the morning.

Non RV electrical question

I have done loads of home electrical projects and have wired all of our additions and such but I am completely stumped. We bought a used small conveyor sandwich oven for our ice cream shop. It is marked 208/60/1. Normally you see the voltage as 208-230 meaning it will run at 208 or 220. can I wire it to the 220 circuit? It draws 30 amps which would be a normal 220 draw. Any insight??? I can call the mfg. in the morning but would like to give it a whirl tonight! As always, Thanks!

RE: Brake controller plug and play on 2016 sunstar F53

Yes the plug was part of a bundle. I will check to be sure it was not the OBDII. Thanks for the response!

Brake controller plug and play on 2016 sunstar F53

On our old sightseer the plug and play to connect the brake controller was on top of the steering column. When we bought the 2016 sunstar I pulled off the dash cover and the plug that is there looks nothing like the 2008 ford plug in and nothing like the plug that Winnebago sent with the new coach. Did they move it or did they change plugs?? Thanks!!
